Broke my Lib T.Rice Pro HP !!!!

Managed to brake my T.Rice Pro HP in the Vans Penken Park in Mayrhofen last week. The topsheet just cracked in the nose causing a structural weakness all the way to the base below, as in it gives in and bends at the crack excessively.

What really blows is that I didn't even have a notable impact or fall, it just gave in during a nose press on a box slide???

Anyone come across this before with this board (or similar lib techs).

Just waiting for the warranty people to get back to me to see if they will replace it, anyone got advice on the situation

Well there's still a few days of the season left up in Scotland so you've still got time to give it a go! How's the chin by the way?

Glad you got a replacement. There was a post in I think, Mervin 2014, thread. A guy had a Banana Magic (all basalt like the TR HP) and it snapped.

I had commented that my new TR HP 161 cracked excessively by just flexing with my knee. It was enough for me to not flex that much anymore.

Wondering if there's something going on with these basalt boards.

EDIT- here's the thread. Post and pics are bottom of page. http://www.snowboardingforum.com/boa...wboards-8.html
